we had'nt been back from our holiday on the I.O.W when one evening whilst at home there was a banging on the front door opening it to see two police officers who told me my Wife had been knocked over by a car.
I have never ever driven a car so fast in built up traffic before and how I got to the Royal Infirmary without causing an accident I'll never know,

Greeted there by 2 nurses and escorted to a sideroom there on a bed I saw my wife black and blue bloated face I never saw the tubes the wires and all the other stuff around the bed just her face, strangely enough I did'nt break down at the sight just utterly gobsmacked for a few minutes until a doctor explained that they would have to operate quickly and wanted my consent, only then did I see the whole picture and was forced to sit down after the doctors explained all of her injuries from head to toe but we concerned about the build up of her head injury, but continued to tell me that virtually every bone from her hips downward were broken and would need skin grafts. I stayed what seemed like days but was a few hours after the operation, and the doctors came to see me after the op but confided that she might not live the night......now what do you think what do you do....what can you do, lost completely lost, god knows who I drove home I dont know, what to tell the kids was going through my head all the drive but I HAD TO TELL THE TRUTH, their Mother was in a induced coma with severe heard injuries and might not survive.

HOW do you attempt to get on with YOUR life, like going to work to keep the family together...I worked earlies 6 till 2 so for the next few days it was about my survival as I could'nt do much about my wife, she stayed in a coma for 7 weeks and every day I dragged myself to work rush home wash and change, drive to the hospital and sit there till 8 at night reading a book to her or conversing just after Christmas that year she woke up from her sleep and a week later was transferred to Wakerley Lodge rehabilitation centre for another 5 months where she was taught to speak again and physio continuously taught her to stand and walk once more, then she was allowed out back to me in May.

But I have to say she has received very little help from the Authorities in 22 years and aftercare was abysmal.


just hope you all do not have to go through this, and please no sympathy I've got though it, a lot of poor buggers dont

I also have to commend my wife for her dogged determination to get as far as she has and also the the way she has withstood other afflictions that have blighted her life
